sources say adam lanza saw himself as being in direct competition with anders breivik, a norwegian man who killed 77 people in july, 2011.1. breivik killed eight with a bombing in downtown oslo, he then moved to a nearby island where he hunted down and fatally shot 69 people, mostly teenagers attending a summer camp. c two officials who have been briefed on the newtown connecticut, investigation say lanza wanted to top breivik's death toll and targeted nearby sandy hook elementary school because it was the easiest target with the largest cluster of people. based on evidence they have collected, investigators also believe lanza was acting out the fantasy of a video shooting game as he killed 20 first grade students and six adults. sources say lanza fired shots at the first police officers to respond as they moved through the school's parking lot. unlike breivik who surrendered lanza killed himself as police
5:31pm
closed in, ending his massacre br sooner than he intended officials haven't relegaled what led them to the motive. sources say investigators have found evidence landers was obsessed with breivik. they've also recovered what they call a trove of violent video games from the basement of lanza's home. sources say lanza spentces countless hours there alone in as ho private gaming room with the windows blacked out, honing his computer shooting skills. lanza made multiple visits to nearby gun ranges with his mother nancy lanza where they practiced together with actual weapons. three guns all registered tod nancy lanza were used in is sandy hook massacre. lanza used a fourth weapon to kill his mother before his attack on the school. police are now reaching out to people in the online gaming community who may have had encounters with lanza to better understand, scott, the full scope of what may have motivated him. >> pelley: bob, lanza did
5:32pm
everything he could to destroy the hard drives on the home computers. have investigators found anything from that? >> reporter: no, unfortunately scott, so far they have not. lanza's damaged computer hasn't yielded any usable evidence. investigators in quantico are trying to piece together the hard drive which lanza deliberately smashed but we're told the equipment is in bad shape. >> pelley: by the way, anders breivik, who bob just mentioned, was sentenced to the maximum of men 21 years in prison. s that sentence can be extended if a judge finds he is still dangerous. olympic runner oscar pistorius now charged with murder, is due in court for a bail hearing. pistorius is accused of shooting his girlfriend, reeva steenkamp at his home in south africa.uth pistorius is famous for running wearing carbon blades to replace the legs that he lost as a child a correspondent emma hurd is in johannesburg, south africa. emma, the prosecution will
5:33pm
present its case tomorrow? what do we expect to hear? >> reporter: this is the bail hearing so they may be required to reveal a little bit about the evidence that they have in terms about what happened on the early hours of valentine's day morning we know that the prosecution wants to go after oscar pistorius for premeditated murder. like wise, his defense lawyers are desperate to get him out of custody and out on bail. so they argue this is not pre- meditated murder, they will ask the prosecution to show therder strength of their evidence, the magistrate in the case will have to decide whether they havether enough to launch that charge of premeditated murder, who we know that it's been confirmed by the police so far is that she was shot four times and his 9 millimeter pistol was found at the scene. >> pelley: emma, reeva steenkamp's funeral is also tomorrow, the same day as the bail hearing.al >> yes, she is going to be laid to rest in a memorial service in
5:34pm
port elizabeth, the town on the east coast in south africa, the town where she grew up. sh and her family after that private service are expected to address the media. they have held their silence so far issuing just written statements. her father saying that he felt fat no hatred, only sadness. her mother saying she can't believe that in a blink, in an breath, her beautiful daughter is gone. >> pelley: emma hurd in johannesburg, south africa. thank you very much, emma. another famous athlete played golf with the president in florida over the weekend. tiger woods. today the president flew home after his three day trip. he was returns to face a number of issues, including a march 1 deadline to work out a budget deal. before across-the-board spending cuts kick in in the federal. another big issue for theer president is immigration reform and over the weekend a partial white house plan for immigration
5:35pm
reform leaked out to the press. that caused a bit of an uproar and major garrett has been looking into that for us. major, what was in the white house plan? >> reporter: well, scott, white house officials tell us what was leaked over the weekend is real. it's a partial draft of half a bill. i'll get to what's missing in half a second. but what we do know is the administration's current thinking about what to do about the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants living in the united states right now. point one, the administration wants a temporary four-year visa to provide legal status mean nothing more deportation. that could be renewed. then after eight years they canig apply for with what's known as permanent legal residency. more commonly, a green card. there's also administration thinking on border security and an unspecified increase in border security subject to negotiations with congress and then for workers who try to find jobs in the future who might not have documents, an e-verify system to make sure undocumented workers aren't given jobs. what's missing, scott, is a section dealing with all future legal immigration issues: high- skilled workers, seasonal farm workers and workers who work in
5:36pm
hotels or restaurants. that's not in the bill at all. without that, this doesn't have much of a chance.that >> pelley: so, major, with some of the parts that you haveith talked about in the piece, could those get through the congress? >> reporter: not without the section dealing with legal immigration. that's why republicans swore critical this weekend, scott.ng last year republicans criticized the president for being missing in action, not drafting a bill. now that he admits he is republicans say he's contaminating the process. their point is that if you don't have a comprehensive bill, one that can pass republicans and democrats in both the house and senate, this is a futile effort, the white house says republicans are going to be dared to vote up or down eventually and they better get used to that. >> pelley: major, thank you very much. we learned today that pope benedict xvi is hard of hearing and partially blind in one eye. that's from a journalist who interviewed him recently. in ten days, the pope, who is 85 will retire as head of the catholic church. last night he prayed with some
